Starting them young
This weekend I attended the Smokin' Blues and BBQ event put on by the Duncanville Lions club. The event included an IBCA sanctioned cook off which drew 24 participants. They also had a kids cook off. Each kid got a small grill (which they got to keep) and a pork chop to cook. 20 kids participated and prizes were handed out in two categories, 10 and under and 11-17. I was not there for the finals but the judges reported they had some great pork chops.

I love barbecue. I always wanted to spend some vacation time sampling the best BBQ joints in Texas. A few years ago, my friend Scott and I started doing just that and we've been doing it every year since. We call it the "Calories and Cholesterol Tour". Since so many people were asking me about our experiences, I started writing them up. We are not expert eaters or writers. We just do this for fun and because we LOVE Texas BBQ.
A note about our reviews. We tend to be "stealth" reviewers. We don't ask for pit tours or cooking techniques and we try to be discrete about taking photos til after we are done. We want to experience each meal as an average customer.

I also have a separate bass fishing blog.
